how u do it

 

May 17, 2011

Our seven year old grand daughter, who we adopted, was in a programme at school. The teacher wanted the parents to provide aprons and a chefs hat for the children. I'm not very good at crafts, but I bought two tea towels, and some ribbon, cardboard, and fabric glue etc, to make the apron and chefs hat. First I folded the tea towel (for the apron) in a triangular shape for the bib part of the apron. (I sewed them without cutting the tea towel). Then I used the ribbon for the top part of the apron to go around the neck and the waist, I sewed in on the edges. For the hat I got a length of cardboard and made it into a cylinder to fit "Melody's" head. Then I cut out a circle for the top of the chefs hat, also out of the other tea towel I cut the circle a little bigger for the top of the hat. wrapped a rectangular shaped piece around the cardboard cylinder, and glued them into place. I took the nice pattern off the bottom of the tea towel I used, and made a nice border on the chefs hat. The teacher at the school, raved about Melody's cute outfit. It was so easy too.
